SCC API provider

Everyone,

I'm searching for interest, as well as coding advice.

Here's the deal. Although I would like to do Java work in Linux, I do C#
work in Windows with Visual Studio.NET for a living. In my opinion,
SourceSafe sucks worse than the jetwash of a supersonic F-14. Microsoft
doesn't even use SourceSafe internally, they have a custom solution that is
rumored to be like CVS, Subversion, and BitKeeper combined. My problem is
I've never worked in C/C++ before. Being a complete newbie to C is a
disadvantage, but I don't care -- I want to use Subversion and VS.NET is my
environment for the forseeable future. (And I don't like AnkhSvn)

Because Subway has been pretty inactive lately, I broke down and signed the
NDA for the SCC API. I intend to build a SCC provider for Subversion, using
the Subversion libraries directly. Since Subversion is written in C and so
is the Win32 API, I decided to go with C. Needless to say, it's not easy
going for me. It took me a week to figure out how to prompt for the
repository URL and working directory, and I haven't tackled authentication
yet.

I wish I could open up the source and ask for help, but I can't. That's life
with an NDA I guess.

What I want to ask is this: Does anyone out there care? Is anyone in the
same situation as me? If anyone has any ideas on how to isolate the SCC API
so that I can open source the rest, I would love to hear them.

If anyone has specific knowledge of the SCC API, please don't post it to the
list. Instead, you can answer me directly at k_dub[at]tigris[dot]org.

Long live Subversion! :)
